together for science. yes, you heard that right. welcome to our viewers on public television in america and elsewhere around the globe. tonight, tensions are still high in egypt days after muhammed mercy -- muhammed mursi took sweeping powers. he claimed that only sovereign matters would be protected from judicial review. but on the street, thousands gathered in cairo for the funeral of an activist who died during clashes last week. more protests were planned for tuesday. late today, however, the muslim brotherhood decided to postpone its rally saying that it wanted to support the president after an outbreak of violence. joining me now is a local supporter of the revolution that removed the president in art -- remove president mubarak from power. m do you mursi is trying to -- do you i is tryingdent murss to hijack the revolution? >> he forgets that this is not about the muslim brotherhood. if it were not for the power grab, we would have been out on the street saying exactly what we said today. the revolution calls for dignity, liberty and social justice. the revolution does not call f

to see america get involved in this? >> it's an interesting and important question. few things. this wasn't planned but it was interesting the president and hillary clinton were in asia at the time that all this began happening because for some time now there has been an attempted pivot towards foreign policy away from the middle east and asia. as gaza shows that's still the world's hot spot and we have to be there. i do think, though, that there's going to be more pressure. the u.s. is not going to say quite this is your problem to the region, but there is going to be more pressure for egypt to get involved. we don't quite know what kind of a leader president morsi is yet. we're all watching and learning. egypt will have to be an important part of the solution. the door between egypt and gaza was pretty much shut during the mubarak era. despite morsi being a member of the muslim brotherhood. it's still pretty closed. egypt has 80 mill enpeople, many whom are are poor, i think they're probably on the fence about wanting to take responsibility for another 1.6, 1.8 people in gaza although i

prosperity for america, helps reduce our budget deficit, is humane, is enforceable, no one said it would be easy but that's what the people send us hoar to do and regardless of the outcome of this particular bill, we are simply taking another week in avoiding addressing the real issues of the imdepration crisis in this country. i encourage my colleagues to vote against the rule which was a closed process and doesn't allow for consideration of even noncontroversial amendments such as my ev-5 amendment. and i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the gentleman from florida. mr. nugent: mr. speaker, and to my good friend from colorado, we agree on so many issues. particularly as it relates to immigration reform. we agree. i think this is the first step in regards to where we need to go. you have sold a very persuasive argument in regards to why it is so important so important that we have a stem vee is program. -- visa program. while it's important to us to keep that brainpower we educated in the united states, keep them here in this country

to egypt, to its credit, america is allowing egypt to immediate this and so far, egyptian officials say they are not [ inaudible ] a peace treaty with israel. president morsi says he's committed to the international obligations but he's also using his leverage to perhaps rein in hamas. it's not necessarily that hamas feels empowered but now perhaps egypt's president is saying to hamas you also have a responsibility to govern, you can't just fire these rockets indiscriminately and trigger this type of backlash. this isn't only a crossroads for israel and gaza, it has a tremendous amount of implications for egypt and u.s. foreign policy vis-a-vis the new emerging realities of the arab world. >> i want to open this up to our panel in new york. something that has been going on that i don't think has got an ton of coverage, is how the israeli defense ministry is using twitter to sort of talk about what they are doing. max fisher writing in "the washington post" -- skeptics particularly in the arab countries surrounding israel have seemed to consider the tweets posts overly triumphant or inse

because it is the modern 1776. america is the oldest country of the modern world. the american constitution provided us with the template for classless democracy. it was not achieved immediately, but it was the template. india is important in 1947 because india is the oldest nation of the post-colonial world. the indian constitution creates an ideological template for democracy. with the emergence of india, china had a different template. very interesting, we see these comparisons, two parties, congress and the chinese communist party, became the dominant force in the post independents space. both had to be discriminated because both came from economically driven needs. the chinese offered autocratic left. but had karimov -- charismatic leaders. long story short,ke i i'm waiting for the short part. >> just a little bit longer. both had charismatic leaders, but i [indiscernible] but realistic economic policies that have been following were not working. in one case, you had soft reform of the 1990's and in china's case, from hard left the hard reform. >> right. >> the corruption

and they are at a crossroads, are you going accept america as it is and not only reck these that demographics have change and the issues have change and marriage equality and marijuana and lots of things that are on the ballots that people have feelings on and they were bafrnking on it, and do you accept that or hide under the covers to pretend that going after white voters and all of the language of the traditional america, and taking this america back is the way to go. i think that there are great voices like bobby jindal and others and my friend hogan has been there, too, saying, we have to change with the times and we have to modernize the thinking here, and the tension we will continue to see play itself out is which way do they go and which force within the party wins out. i hope that the republican party gets the act together, because the country is stronger when we have good ideas, and not idealology coming from different side sides. >> the power panel, thank you susan page, and karen finney and hogan gidley, and thank you all and have a good thanksgiving if we don't chat later in the week. >> th
